New York (dpa) - World powers turned to the United Nations on Tuesday to resolve protracted problems that have defied solutions, from climate change to the equal distribution of wealth and human rights issues.
US President George W Bush urged the UN to uphold the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the document that led to other human rights conventions over the past 60 years dealing with the freeing of people from tyranny, violence, hunger and diseases. "As we gather for this 62nd General Assembly, the standards of the declaration must guide our work in the world," Bush said. "The mission of the United Nations requires liberating people from tyranny and violence," Bush told the body, in which many governments had disagreed with his policy in Iraq and global anti-terror campaign.
